Morning Ken,
1. Thanks I did not compile the start program. More hast less speed!!!

2. My program files I placed under a folder HPSTEL12\JCMCPS
     The data files under folder  HPSTEL12\DBF
     I then copied RUNTIME under the root.
     Used the DBE installer to open my dbe admin.
     named the HPSTEL\DBF = STELSYSTEM
                     HPSTEL\JCMCPS = STELLOCAL
I then ran PLUSRUN under RUNTIME. It started and then just stopped.
Installed the dbase12 program and it worked.
Thank you for the help. Cornelius
